Change icon in task bar - Please help!

P: n/a
Can someone tell me how to change the icon in the windows task bar? I already
figured out how to do it in the forms, and shortcuts but the windows task bar
still says Microsoft Access, I only want it to show the database name.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Look at the startup-options. You can choose another bitmap or ico.
To show only the database name is impossible IMO.

Arno,

Thanks for your comments, but as I mentioned I already have the icons
working in the forms. I went to the start-up optins and selected an icon, so
the forms have my icon. It is the windows task bar that will not show the
icon, am I missing something? Does this have to show the Microsoft Access?

You mean you have an application-icon which is different than the icon displayed at the taskbar??
I don't understand what wrong at your side.

On my side the windows taskbar shows the same ico as the application's title bar ... as every appp that I use does...

Arno,
Yes, in the task bar it says (2) Microsoft Access, then if i click on that,
it shows the main form (with icon) and the database name: Database (Access
file format 2000) this also shows the icon.
What I do not want is the (2) Microsoft Access to show in the task bar. Hope
I am making sense?
Thanks
Russ

Is this Win XP? Right-click the taskbar and choose properties
There is an option there to group the same or related buttons.
Uncheck this.

(I have a Dutch version here so I don't know what the option is really called ...)

Arno,
Seems to problem witth icon, if I remove the icon I only get the name of the
database as I should.
Humm, wonder what is wrong, can you use only special icons? what is criteria?

Ah ha, I found it....

Show or hide multiple program icons on the Windows taskbar
Selecting this check box will display a separate icon on the Microsoft
Windows taskbar for each open window in your Office program. Clearing this
check box will display a single icon for your Office program on the Windows
taskbar.

On the Tools menu in your program, click Options, and then click the View tab.

Select or clear the Windows in taskbar check box.
